Advantages

What are the advantages and benefits of using Acre Design?

 

 

 

More money left over to spend on the things you enjoy.

 

After over 400 projects, our designs are always the most cost-effective, and buildable solutions possible. We design every element very carefully to make sure that your builder’s quotes are as accurate as possible. Ask to speak to one of our contractors who will tell you why they love using our plans to build to.

 

 

Enjoy a dream home – designed just for you!

 

With our brand new 3D software and lots of your help, we create 3D ‘rendered images’ of the outside and inside to show you exactly how your home will look once complete, along with videos and running commentary to explain our thinking. No need to try and translate old style blueprints or simply trust your designer or architect, you will be involved in our design process from start to finish.

 

 

A happier family life.

 

Whether you are giving each child their own room, or creating your dream master suite in the loft, the additional space will improve your relationships with your family and improve happiness throughout the home, surely this is the most important thing that there is?

 

 

Minimal disruption to your life during the build.

 

The level of detail we go into on our plans means there is no questions to answer on site, the builders arrive, follow the drawings, no initiative required, and works will be completed in record time, you might not even know they are there…

 

 

Peace of mind throughout.

 

We send target dates for each stage right at the beginning, and we send you a list of when you will hear from us during the design and approval process. We learnt long ago that an informed customer is a happy customer! Plus, we love to hear from you!

 

 

No cowboys, no extras during the building work.

 

Acre Design has close working relationships with excellent contractors. These contractors love to work to our clear, accurate and detailed plans so they recommend us too. We can keep them busy for most of the year with our projects and to maintain that relationship, they make sure they do a great job for each of our customers.

Testimonials

Would recommend to anyone needing plans drawn. Alistair and his team have been very good throughout. Their experience and expertise meant that they managed to design exactly what we wanted, all within building regulations. We got a lawful planning certificate straight away. All plans were done very quickly, and all our questions or request were answered straight away. Will use them again if ever I need more plans drawn

Michael Bouvier – Gosforth

Nothing but positive things to say about Alistair, Laura and the team.  Nice design, accommodated what we wanted and the drawings were great.  They directed us to the next steps and put us in touch with some other great services.  Building starts next week!

David Honey – Bedlington

We chose Acre Design simply because they were local and have had good reviews. We just walked in without an appointment but were treated very well by Alistair and his lovely team of people from the start. We wanted an extension to our 80’s built house to improve our kitchen and create a new dining room. Acre really listened to us and understood exactly what we wanted. They came out to our house and took initial measurements before coming up with very professional plans.

We asked for some minor changes which were done quickly to finally come up with what we really wanted. Planning permission and building control were all dealt with by Alistair very efficiently. They recommended a good builder who we employed. All in all we are very happy with Acre design and would recommend them for their very professional but also friendly and approachable attitude.

David Lindsay – Cramlington

A very professional and timely service from Alister and his team. Our ideas and requirements were taken on board and carefully developed in sympathy with the existing house. The drawings for an extension and internal remodelling works were excellent and following receipt of planning and building regulation approvals competitive tenders were invited and a builder appointed with a start on site next year. I would have no hesitation in recommending Acre Design.
